No matter how early you begin moisturizing or how often you wear sunscreen, the skin’s natural aging will reduce elasticity and cause sagging at some point in your life. Fortunately, there is a solution: Morpheus8. This treatment may be the right choice for patients looking to rejuvenate their skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Keep reading to learn all about Morpheus8 skin rejuvenation and how Dr. Chernoff can use this method to help you reach your skincare goals.
What is Morpheus8 treatment?
Morpheus8 is a minimally-invasive microneedling procedure that uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production. As a result, the added collagen helps support new skin cell growth, improving the appearance and texture of the skin and providing a more youthful look.
How It Works
Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery’s Morpheus8 treatment works through a process called “fractional remodeling” to deliver radiofrequency energy directly into the layers of tissue beneath the skin. By targeting the subdermal layer rather than the surface tissue, this method promotes faster healing and reduces downtime post-procedure.
To accomplish this, Morpheus8 uses a matrix of microneedles. These needles painlessly create tiny wounds in the tissue, encouraging your body’s natural healing process to begin working its magic. During the healing process as well as the weeks and months after the treatment, your body will produce more collagen and elastin – two key proteins that are essential for maintaining your skin’s elasticity and boosting firmness.
Because Morpheus8 penetrates deeper into your skin than most other microneedling procedures, it has the ability to boost collagen production in the foundational layers of tissue, making it more effective for skin tightening and contouring across the body.
Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery’s Morpheus8 treatment caters to a wide variety of skincare goals, and the procedure’s benefits are nearly boundless. From collagen stimulation to lasting results, these perks are worth checking out. Additionally, Morpheus8 offers adjustable depth and settings to customize the treatment for the area, skin type, and treatment goals.
Improves & Tightens Skin Texture
The goal of any Morpheus8 procedure is to improve the appearance of your skin. As discussed earlier, this treatment can reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and provide a more even skin tone by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
Perhaps the most important aspect of Morpheus8 treatment is that it is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical procedure designed to reduce downtime while providing the same contoured results as other similar methods. Because the system relies on the fractional remodeling technique, this treatment requires no incisions, keeping your recovery time short and sweet.
Dr. Chernoff’s microneedling procedures are designed to work practically anywhere on the body, making it a highly effective and versatile treatment option for nearly any patient. Other procedures may only work on the face, but Morpheus8’s flexibility means patients can get the high-quality results this treatment is known for wherever they want to improve the appearance of the skin.
Safe for All Skin Types
Some skin treatments can cause hyper or hypopigmentation (darkening or lightening of the skin), which can create an uneven skin tone that detracts from the benefits of the treatment – but not Morpheus8.
Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency energy, which is a color-blind technology that is far less likely to cause changes in skin tone. This means patients of all skin tones and types can reap the benefits of this versatile procedure.
Because Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency and microneedling technology, it can reduce the appearance of scars by breaking down the tough, fibrous tissue that causes them. This deep stimulation of collagen and elastin initiate the wound healing process, which helps to smooth out scars and create a more even skin texture.
This microneedling technique is also known for the durability of its results. In fact, patients can expect to see results for up to a year or more when using this procedure. This is because the changes occur over several weeks or months following your treatment and are based on your body’s own natural tissue rather than artificial filler or toxins.
What to Expect from Treatment
From preparation to treatment to recovery, here’s what you can expect from your Morpheus8 procedure at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery.
Ahead of your procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends you avoid sun exposure, tanning, and any other skin treatments for at least a week before your scheduled appointment.
During your appointment, one of our expertly trained providers will use a topical anesthetic to numb the skin and help prevent discomfort gently. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, he’ll use a handheld device to deliver the treatment, moving it across the targeted treatment area. The treatment time is based on the size of the area we are treating.
The recovery process for Morpheus8 treatment is minimal, but it’s normal to experience slight swelling and redness similar to that of a mild sunburn. These effects will fade within a few hours. Over time, your rejuvenated skin will apparel.
Be sure to keep your skin clean and moisturized immediately after your treatment to ensure the most optimal results. Although these results are not immediate, you will begin to notice improvements in the weeks and months after the treatment. Depending on your goals and needs, Dr. Chernoff or our expert providers may recommend multiple treatments to provide the best look possible.
